Mother’s day – the time to celebrate everything that our mother’s do for us. Whoever fulfils this maternal figure in your family, it is important to take the time to show how much you appreciate everything they do for you. Mothering Sunday is all about honouring mums and maternal figures, and has evolved into an occasion for kids to show their appreciation through treats and gifts. Every mother and motherly figure loves to receive homemade gifts from their little ones – it really shows how much they care by taking the time to craft something up. At Barncliffe we love to get creative, so we know all about making heartfelt gifts. We’ve put together a list of some mother’s day crafts for kids you can help your little one make to honour their maternal figure. Keep reading for some simple creative crafts they can dig their little hands into!
Mother’s Day Presents Made With Love
A great way to show appreciation is with a personalised, homemade card featuring a loving message. There are such a variety of ways to make a personalised card – all that is needed is some card, glue, and a bit of imagination. Get really creative with different shapes, colours, and decorations for something that really suits their personality. For example, if they love wildlife, why not create it in the shape of a beautiful butterfly? This can then be decorated however the child wishes.
Fold the card and cut into the desired shape
Decorate with everything and anything you wish
Finish with a personalised message
A decorated photo frame with a special picture is a great personalised mother’s day present. It’s really simple to make too – all that is needed is a plain wooden photo frame that can be spruced up with glitter, stickers, and paint. Make sure to remove the middle of the frame before the little one gets their hands on decorating to avoid any damage to the display area.
